§ Mr. Bulmer
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will list the research currently being undertaken by his Department into future patterns of employment.
§ Mr. Golding
The Department of Employment is undertaking some internal work on employment forecasting models, on changes in employment patterns and on the manpower implications of future technology and is in touch with external research workers in the field.
Details of current and recent research projects undertaken or financed by the Department of Employment or the Manpower Services Commission are set out in the booklet "Research 1977–78" published jointly by the Department and the MSC. I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
